Season. It’s that time of the year when we’re all thinking about what ski season will be like, and whether or not we’ll make it out there. Well, I’ll tell you what—it depends on what time of the year you ask. There are clearly two very different seasons in Park City, Utah (and surrounding areas): the Summer season and the Ski season. So let’s take a closer look at when each one ends.
The summer season in Park City lasts from June to October, and it’s one of the best times to be in the city. You’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful, sunny days and warm evenings, and you won’t have to worry about your ski equipment being damaged by the cold weather.
Skiing during the summer is certainly possible, but it’s certainly not recommended. The temperatures aren’t good, and it can get pretty humid, especially in the summertime. I’d say it’s best to avoid the slopes during the hottest parts of the day, specifically in the afternoon. The heat is just too much for your equipment to handle, as well as the sweat dripping down your back. Plus, don’t even think about trying to fit in some skiing after work hours. The lines will be super long, and you won’t be able to manage a single turn without being towed. It’s not worth the risk of skin irritation or worse.
The ski season in Park City begins in the fall and ends in the spring, and it is absolutely brilliant to be a part of it. Of course, you have to have the equipment to be able to enjoy the sport—you can’t just show up in the winter with snowflake-shaped earrings and call yourself a ski person. Still, once the snow starts falling it’s like a dream come true. You get to spend your days skiing and your nights social climbing with the people you love. Not to mention the amazing views that come with skiing.
It’s not just about skiing, either. There are other activities you can do during spring season, such as golfing, hiking, and mountain biking. Depending on where you live, you might even get a bit of beach weather too, which is something we all need in our lives. The point is that the days are getting longer, the air is getting fresher, and we’re getting excited about the coming season. So go out there and treat yourself with some winter sports!
International Mountain Biking and Hiking Festival (IMBAHF)—When Is It?
Also known as the Winter X Games, this international mountain biking and hiking festival takes place every year in the spring, and it’s a great chance for you to get out there and try some new tricks. While you’re at it, you might as well check out some of the best mountain bike trails nearby, as you won’t get the chance to do that on your holidays. The best way to find out about the festival is to check out their website—you can usually find information about the dates there.
I think it’s fair to say that most of us are looking forward to this festival. It’s the best chance we have of getting some winter sports in, and it reminds us that winter is on its way. So let’s make the most of it!
So there you have it, the definitive guide on when does park city ski season begin and when does it end. It’s always best to check the weather conditions before heading out, so you can prepare yourself accordingly. As for me, I’m looking forward to enjoying my last few months in the city before heading back to the beach for the summer season. And what a summer it’s going to be!
